I have no affiliate engagements from which I receive remuneration and my guest blogs are just that: guests who have information which you may find valuable. This is from a gentleman and personal friend who has been a pastor and servant of Jesus Christ for many years. He recently changed venues for service to the Kingdom of God and is now with an organization called The Legacy Coalition. Cool stuff!
Brent’s invitation to us is extended to any in the US and as online anywhere in the world.
(Sorry, but if you want him to travel to foreign countries in Australia, Africa, Europe, Asia or California [😂], you’ll have to arrange for that! 😉)
yours and His,
Dear C.A. and Anita,
It is likely that you have some grandparents among your blogging community. So I want you to know more about “intentional Christian grandparenting,” which you may want to share in a blog. Here is an ongoing, online resource each Monday night at 7 PM CST. Each session is archived for one week, so it can be viewed throughout the week after.
There is no charge to register to watch and no financial info is requested.
Check out the February schedule and the topics below, beginning this coming Monday.
I would be glad to be a resource to your church to start a conversation about a grandparenting ministry!
Legacy Coalition, Pastors Division, U.S.
